During the last 9 years, more than 800,000 plug-in electric cars were sold in the U.S. Almost half of that number falls on the state of California, which aims for 1.5 million by the year of 2025.
Plug-in electric car sales in California are approaching the level of 400,000 vehicles, which is expected to be reached in April. A most recent graphic shows 388,815 sales to the end of March, 12,631 being sold in March alone.
California is leading the U.S. in electric plug-in car sales because it is the country’s largest car market, with high wealth and lots of models to choose from. In California are nearly 15,000 charging places, which makes the life of electric car drivers easier, too.
